REMINDER! YOUNG AMERICANS (3rd ANNUAL) SUMMER MUSIC CAMP AT MONA SHORES HIGH SCHOOL

 Looking for something THEATRICALLY AMAZING to be involved in this summer (July 19-July 23)?

 Look no further! The YOUNG AMERICANS are coming back to Muskegon again this summer for a week long day camp involving music, dance and theater!

 This summer camp is open to ANY STUDENT (not just Mona Shores) that will be entering the 3rd grade next fall through college age.

I am confident that if you asked anyone who has participated in the past couple years, they would tell you they had the time of their lives. The week will culminate in two outstanding performances.

You will be stunned at how much your child learns in one week!

MORE INFO AND Register HERE! 

Further, if you really want to have an unforgettable, over the top experience, sign up also to HOMESTAY a pair of Young Americans (or more)!

REGISTER AND CAMP BROCHURE HERE • YA Summer Camp Brochure • Register HERE! 

What can participants expect?

Our cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages to students all around the world.  The camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.

 Throughout the week, campers will spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group. We generally break kids up into elementary, middle, and high school groups. They will also be taking fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, and improv acting.

 On the fourth day of camp, we bring in an industry professional from our Alumni group who teach master classes that share the skills and experiences they have learned in their respective professions. The master teachers have had and still have careers as Broadway performers, major TV network hosts, casting directors, and many more related professions.

 The camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, learn an incredible 1-hour variety show, and take workshops in singing, dancing, and acting that you don’t want to miss out on!

overseas tour

REMINDER! If you are traveling on the overseas tour this summer to Spain and France, you should have applied for your passport by now. FYI, if already have a passport and it is set to expire within 3 months of our return home, you will need to apply for a renewal (or get a new one) for this tour. Passports must be more new than 3 months post trip!

Also, if you still need the info on how to apply for your passport, here is a link to the orignal blog post I made about it:

Passport Instructions and Information!

Apr 26

Pop Lists WILL NOT be posted tonight!

Blog Horizontal (1)

NEW! Please DO NOT stay up waiting for the Pop Final show list to be posted. It’s been a long two days and although we have done some preliminary work on the final list post auditions, we have more to do before being ready to post. We hope to have everything in place by Friday at the latest!
